Summary: This is the Netgear Smart Switch. It has some dvanced features such as 802.1x, ACLs, Rate limiting, DSCP/TOS-based prioritization, IGMP Snooping, SNMP v1, v2, RSTP Can be managed on your network through its web-based GUI

Summary: I'm a satisfied Netgear user - I've been using their product (mostly switches) for a few years now and I have no complaints - they do an excellent job at an excellent price. I bought this particular switch so that I could play around with gigabit ethernet and jumbo frame, and it seems to be as...
Will post full review once I have time to complete installation.

Summary: Not yet installed, so this review is subjective at the moment. When I get further along with them, I'll update this review, but for now, the advertised feature set is what I needed for this specific project.
